Saudi King Strengthens Call for International Blasphemy Ban: ‘It Is Our Duty’‏

But of course they can go about maligning other religions, such as still teaching in their schools that Jews drink the blood of Christians and Muslims on Passover:  That is just fine, apparently

Over the weekend, the influential king of Saudi Arabia became the most recent public figure to call for a worldwide ban on insulting Islam and its prophet Muhammad.  “I demand a UN resolution that condemns any country or group that insults religions and prophets,” King Abdullah bin Aziz remarked, according to the Agence France-Presse. “It is our duty and that of every Muslim to protect Islam and defend the prophets.”

The widespread calls for a blasphemy ban follow last month’s deadly protests across the Muslim world, many of which were blamed on an offensive YouTube trailer. At the time, the AFP adds, Saudi Arabia threatened to block YouTube throughout the kingdom if the corporation didn’t take action to censor its content. YouTube somewhat complied, restricting the availability of the movie in Saudi Arabia.

Like "hate speech" this slaps in the face of freedom of speech. pandering to one group at the expense of freedom and liberty for everyone is just wrong.

Stand out from the rest by standing as a man of integrity.

Unfortunately the Vatican and other major religions (I think maybe also the Church of England) are keen enough to give at least token support to such a ban on blasphemy, being too naive to realize it's just a trojan horse for Islam to wreak even more havoc, and with UN approval too!!

Abrahamic religions taken fundamentally are fundamentally evil. Be it Christian, Islam, or Hebrew, they are based on hate of others.

Forget religion. The world will never know peace until the cult known as Islam, and it's followers, is completely eradicated. "Completely" eradicated!

4:53,

Perhaps you've heard this one: "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Congratulations on displaying your ignorance of Christianity and Judaism for all to see.

For the record, Islam is practically a direct opposite of Christianity. Claiming they're the same is straight up libel.

This seems to be a law that has the following fundamental flaws:
1. it is a law against being offended - this would trump freedoms guaranteed by most western democracies
2. it is a law establishing an especially protected class - denying equal protection under the law.
In short - bad idea, wherever it happens and whomever it is aimed at.

Anon 5:49 PM, welcome to the small group of those who "get it". And that is precisely why the Constitution was written as it is--to NOT give preference to one group over another. We as a country, and our elected leaders, have let this country slip into a very dangerous situation.

Isn't th Sunies and Sheits still in a Millineum long war? If it weren't for the infidels, they would be at each others throat. Also, wouldn't the radicals of all religions have to be arrested, including Saudi's religious police?
